Making the most of every emission.

By producing plastic with green carbon we can make the most out of the natural photosynthesis, and the self balancing emission.

Green Carbon

What’s green carbon?

The term green carbon is used to describe the carbon stored in plant biomass – forests and vegetation, for example – and the soils below. In other words, green carbon is the carbon produced by photosynthesis itself and a vital part of the natural carbon cycle.

Black Carbon

What’s the difference between black and green carbon?

Green carbon is basically a self balancing system, where the carbon that the plants and forest doesn’t need just seeps further down into the ground. That leftover carbon, however, is known as black carbon (or more commonly as oil). And if you burn said black carbon you create an imbalance in the atmosphere by adding more carbon to it than it can handle.

Tall Oil

How do you utilise the green carbon?

By producing polyethylene from tall we both utilize a by-product from the paper industry and prevent black carbon from being burnt in the first place. In other words, we only use the carbon that comes from the photosynthesis and are thereby making sure that the oil stays in the ground.

Sustainable forestry

Isn’t it bad to cut down trees?

To keep the carbon green and thereby our stretch films truly sustainable, we only collaborate with companies that subscribe to the model of sustainable forestry management – a model under which more wood grows than is harvested each year. This ensures that the forest is continually renewed, rather than depleted, and that the resources it provides are protected.
